Fifty low-income and homeless veterans were outfitted with suits and will be given job counseling, thanks to Saint Anthony's in San Francisco.

Homeless veterans in San Francisco got a makeover on Monday morning -- St. Anthony's outfitted 50 low-income and homeless veterans with business suits.

They got help from fashionistas to pick out jackets, pants, ties, and shoes.

"It changes the way people see themselves," said Karl Robillard with St. Anthony's. "I think they are really able to reestablish a confidence and a dignity that they need to find a job."

Veteran Steven Bradley added, "I came here to find a suit because I do not own a suit and I need a suit as I am soon becoming much more professional in my work."
